High Court Suspends DCI Summons of Lawyer Danstan Omari


The High Court has suspended the summons issued by the DCI to lawyer Danstan Omari.

Omari was called to appear for questioning about the raid on the house of former Interior CS Fred Matiangi.

Justice Jairus Ngaah issued a stay of the summons, certifying the matter as urgent and granting Omari leave to file a substantive application.

In his court application, Omari argues that the DCI is acting in bad faith and attempting to victimize him for providing legal services to Matiangi.

He maintains that the notice is an affront to the functionality of Advocates by intruding on the privileged information they receive from their clients.

Omari has been given seven days to submit the substantive motion and serve it on the respondents.

For additional instructions, the matter will be addressed on March 8.
